ACCIDENT AVOIDANCE TEST REPORT-NISSAN AND TOYOTA EXPERIMENTAL SAFETY VEHICLES

Two Experimental Safety Vehicles (ESVs) manufactured by Nissan and Toyota of Japan were tested to evaluate the accident avoidance performance of each vehicle. The report contains a brief description of each vehicle and of each test performed as well as the results of the tests. The tests performed included: Braking performance -stopping distance, pedal force, emergency braking, brake efficiency, and parking brake tests; steering performance -transient and steady state yaw response; handling -lateral acceleration, sinusoidal steer, and trapezoidal steer tests; overturning immunity -drastic steer and brake tests. Each of the above results are presented and compared to the Japanese ESV design requirements.
